Xfinity Stream App not Casting to VIZIO TV with built in Chromecast

I have been streaming live TV to my Vizio TV for months. 

Last night, I tried to cast. It connects, and if I'm fast enough will connect the show I want to watch, but after 25 seconds, it disconnects and returns to the home screen.

I have power cycled my phone, modem, router, and my TV, and even factory reset my TV. I have also searched a lot of the forums, but ultimately nothing works. 

Other apps cast to my TV without issues, so it is not my phone or the TV but appears to be the xfinity stream app.

What is the solution for this?

Hi Folks,  Started having this same issue last night.   Any update?    Don't make me move back to a HDMI cord and my laptop.

Hi there, @user_79a05b and thread. I just checked on this a few minutes ago and the issue is still being worked on by our Engineers. We appreciate everyone in the thread that did our troubleshooting steps and had a ticket opened. That is what leads to something being a known issue and our Engineering team getting involved. We do not have an estimated time of when this will be fixed but will update the thread with any news.

Here are the updates from XFINITY:

They are actively working to resolve this problem as quickly as possible. We will continue to monitor this issue for updates on our end and share them in this thread."

I am curious if an update from Vizio caused any issues on the TVs? I was able to cast to girl's TV without issue and then both of her TVs (same model) updated and now it no longer works. Other apps stream fine, but wonder if Vizio update jacked it up.

@user_d3b349​ yes, that is exactly it, but it was an incompatibility of the Xfinity app.  Xfinity has stated that their engineers are working on an update to fix it.

Apparently they still have not fixed the issue because I am also having this same problem. I have been trying everything for the last two days and nothing has worked today I found this thread! This is how I watch my football games! Come on xfinity. You know another option would be to just add the [Edited: "Language"] app as an option on the Vizio tv. It’s pretty ridiculous I have to plug in a Roku to get the app on my tv.

@user_5a5641 we apologize for the issue you've encountered. 

  1. Please make sure that your device and the TV are connected to the same home network.
  2. Make sure the Chromecast built-in or Google Cast Receiver app is not disabled.
  3. Clear data on Cast function apps, Android System WebView and Chromecast built-in.
    1. Update the app to the latest version. then restart you TV.
  4. Restart the wireless router. (Unplug the router, and wait approximately one minute before reconnecting the power.)

@user_4570b8​ no solution. All we've gotten after a lot of troubleshooting is that Xfinity is aware of issue and engineers are working on it.

@bdrayer​  I’m having the same issue. Can’t believe Xfinity can’t come up with a solution although I shouldn’t be surprised due to their horrendous track record with customer service/support.  I think I’ve finally found enough apps that does have casting that works with my TV that I might just cancel my Xfinity service all together tomorrow if they can’t provide a solution when I call again.

Update. I am being told the reason it shuts off after 15 seconds is Xfinity is no longer supporting streaming. Your company owes us customers some $$$ for abruptly discontinuing services we have paid for and done so without notice or alternatives.

@TalismanSkulls​ I would be curious to get some official word on this. I can still stream live TV away from home.  Just watched football that way yesterday. I can still cast to my TV without issue.  I just can't cast to my girlfriend's Vizio TVs.

It's strange that it's only the Vizio models M and V.  I can cast to my (much less expensive) Vizio D model, but not the M or V models.

I am also still having this issue, and I even still have Xfinity cable, which also has been having issues. Is this fixed yet? I have already tried all the “fixing” troubleshooting…..and still NOT FIXED.  Frustrating to say the least.

@user_871c1e​ don't bother. It's an Xfinity issue. I reset my TV back to factory default and it didn't help.
